Procrastination Station 8/3/11

Wednesday, August 3, 2011

Do that stuff later. This is more fun!

- If by some freak tragedy you haven't read about the Bloggess' giant metal chicken yet, prepare to thank me. It remains one of the funniest blog posts I've ever read, and I promise you'll never open your front door the same way again.



- It's one gorgeous urban decay photo after another in this collection of 75 Pictures of Abandoned Six Flags in New Orleans.
(thx to @banagade for the link!)



- This explained how I can be a hardcore introvert and still do a funny presentation for a room of 500: Caring for Your Introvert. (In a nutshell: we're good one-on-one or performing for crowds, but not much in-between. This lines up with my experiences - how 'bout you guys?)

- And another good read on the subject, found via SuperPunch: 10 Myths About Introverts.



- Fellow Disney fans, did you know that the Haunted Mansion was originally going to be the Museum of the Weird?


See more creepy concept art like this and learn some fascinating history over at Long-Forgotten. (Also found via SuperPunch. Can you tell it's my favorite blog?)


- And finally, here's a random Netflix recommendation for you: Downton Abbey. I've never been in to period films ala Pride and Prejudice before, but this one set in the early 1900s caught my eye, and I was immediately hooked. And then I watched all seven hour-long episodes in two days. :D

It's light on romance and heavy on fabulous characters - and fellow Potter fans will enjoy seeing Professor McGonagall as the straight-backed comic relief. The series was just made last year, though, so the only bad news is we have to wait 'til 2012 for the next season. :(

Oh, and you can watch it on Netflix streaming, so no need to wait for the actual DVDs. Woot!


So tell me, guys, what's wasting your time this week?

  1. That candleman picture is brilliantly creepy. Just unsettling enough.

    I love the Procrastination Station posts... they keep me entertained for so long!

  3. I just started watching Downtown Abbey last night on Netflix! lol I'm pretty hooked, too & I've only watched one episode so far!

  4. I love me some procrastination : ) My go to procrastination station is Pinterest. I go on there "just for a minute" aaaaaand it turns into 30 minutes in no time. My time suck today was registering for Pottermore!!!!!!! Hitting refresh every few minutes really takes time away from other important stuff, like work! It was all worth it though because I got signed up for early entry!!! SQUEE!

  5. I loved Downton Abbey! I thought Maggie Smith was fabulous. That scene with her in the swivel chair was hilarious.

  7. I adore the metal chicken. I want one. I have several metal contraptions (Godfrey, metal man who is named for My Man Godfrey), flowers, a road runner, and an almost 3 ft dragonfly. But, now I want a chicken. Oddly, I do need towels, too....I'd rather have the chicken.

  8. Love, love, love the Six Flags pictures! There's an abandoned amusement park near my house (Rocky Point in RI) and a friend of mine got my photographer hubby and I in before it was demolished. The pictures we were able to get were beautiful but no where near the breathtaking pictures posted here!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I love seeing Harry Potter actors in other movies! I saw A Room With a View a few weeks ago with Maggie Smith and Helena Bonham Carter, and it took me a while to accept that they weren't going to start attacking each other.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I LOVE me some Downton Abbey. And Maggie Smith gets all the best lines of course. I'm especially fond of her befuddled "What's a weekend?" question.

  11. The giant metal chicken was okay...I kept reading...and now I MUST buy bananas for my husband and invisibly write inappropriate things on them.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Regretsy, definitely.

    I do like those Six Flags pictures, and I was pointed to them from some photog nerds. I have to agree with them, though, there are some great pictures they ruined in there by overdoing the fake HDR. :(

  13. Introvert/Extrovert Rant (subtitle, I Don’t Mean to Be a Hater But...)
    I have had to read a couple of articles about introverts and extroverts for school and there has been a lot of interest in the topic lately on the interwebs of late. I realize that modern science has recently shed some light on this issue and that is part of the reason "introverts" have been posting articles like the one you just posted. Sure, there are people whose brains work in different ways and those people might have slightly more introverted tendencies. I get it. But I take issue with the idea that people are completely one way or the other. It might just be hard for me to understand because I have always been very dualist, sometimes needing an entire weekend unplugged from everyone I know and then immediately needing interaction with as many people as I can find, but I honestly don't think that anyone is 100% introvert or extrovert. Even those personality tests that pretty much invented the terms are meant to give the subject an idea of where they land on the spectrum. Sure there are people who identify with a lot of the characteristics of one or the other but in an age where there are so many things we have to divide us, do we really need one more way to label one another in an either/or fashion?
    I know it is important to have these kinds of ideas floating around so that we can better understand ourselves and those who are different from us. I find it troubling though that people will take these kinds of tests and then go about labeling people. Really, that is what brought about all the misinformation about introverts in the first place. Using this kind of black and white labeling for others is never really useful, but it can also be harmful to yourself-- there are plenty of psychological studies about how labeling yourself can cause a kind of self-fulfilling prophecy issue. People change, not everyone is hard wired to be extroverted or introverted especially if you are not very far on the continuum in either direction.
    I don’t mean to discredit the idea all together, I just think that the discussion is getting to be a bit rash and I hope that people put more thought into their self discovery than taking a few multiple choice psychology tests on the internet.

  14. Thanks for the introvert article. I'm going to share it with my 17 year old. She loves to act and sing in front of hundreds of people but will complain (if not cry) when forced into social situations or parties.

    One of her favorite quotes is... "It's not that I hate people. I just feel better when they're not around."

  15. I love love loved Downton Abbey. You may want to also check out the 'return' to Upstairs Downstairs. It's not quite as light-hearted as Downton - but very good all the same.

  16. I adore Downton Abbey!! I too watched it in a short period of time. Twice.

    Love the characters, the time period, the actors, the story. It's all brilliant.

  17. Five foot metal chicken! Bah-ha-ha! I should get marriage counseling from that gal!

  18. Thank you for posting those links to articles about introverts. It made me feel more normal, and sparked some really interesting conversations on Twitter.

    ReplyDelete
  19. LOVE, LOVE, L O V E "Downton Abbey!" I have my DVR set to record all of PBS's "Masterpiece Classic" showings (because I am apparently a certifiable dork) and that was one of my absolute favorites! There's supposed to be a Season 2 coming! Yay!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I <3 the Bloggess and Beyonce.

    Funny enough, when I speak to crowds I actually do it introvertedly. I concentrate on the material and what I'm going to say next and retreat into my own head. I'm speaking out loud but I'm not really seeing the audience - even if I'm looking around, my mind is on the topic, not the environment.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I've been watching Downton Abbey for a week! In fact, I just finished episode 6 on Netflix this afternoon. I'm trying to draw it out as long as I can, but it's only 7 episodes, after all. Le sigh. Can't wait for more!

    ReplyDelete
  22. THANK YOU for posting the links about introverts. I as I was reading, I started nodding and then it turned into full out slapping the table and shouting "YES!". I never thought of myself as an introvert BUT certainly didn't think of myself as an extrovert.

    I've spoken in front of hundreds of people and never once felt nervous, but at family gatherings or social functions, I become a wall-flower.

    I related to SO many things that were addressed in those two articles, that I'm going to hunt down the book that's mentioned as well.

  23. I wander around pintrest.com for way longer than I ought.

    Also, the giant metal chicken made me laugh, and now I want one. All I have is a small metal-ish lawn gnome named Melvin.

  25. My husband and I found Downton Abby by accident and were hooked from the start.

    If you are a Maggie Smith fan and you've never seen it check out Murder By Death. Completely hillarious movie with an all star cast including the now late Peter Falk.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Downton Abbey is awesome! Larkrise to Candleford is a fun series too - "Mr. Bates" is a main character in that.

    ReplyDelete
  27. There are so many items I'd LOVE to snag from NOLA's Six Flags site. The huge planters, the 'exit' sign from the bumper car ride and the awesome iron hinges on the window storm doors just to name a few. Do these abandoned sites allow for such gleanings? It would be a great way to recycle and re-purpose cool stuff from unused amusement parks.

    Just wonderin'

  28. Thank-you SO MUCH for the link to Bloggess' giant metal chicken. That made my day, which I admit was quite confusing for my fellow bank tellers (humour is NSFW at a bank, not that it stops me).

    Also, since I'm not much of a commenty type, thanks for all the awesome you provide daily at EPBOT and Cakewrecks.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Downton Abbey is tops! DH and I love our Masterpiece on Sunday nights, but it's not exactly trendy, you know? I was shocked last year to hear that the whole world (it seemed like) was on board with Downton. It's great to see some really GOOD stuff on public television, isn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Great post! Hooray for introverts! We could use a good fan club. But, we don't really have meetings... We just email occasionally, when we're feeling able, and there's something important to say...

    Are they making another season of Downton Abbey? Anyone know? I'm about to re-watch them, just to get my fix.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thank you for posting the introvert articles. I literally dropped my jaw at how accurate to my personality those descriptions were. I always just assumed I was shy or had social anxiety but those definitions never entirely fit me.

    ReplyDelete
  32. @AjCarey - I am ridiculously jealous. For some reason Pottermore just won't open registration at 4AM before I go to bed. Drat!

    @ hippy undertones - I don't think you're being a hater at all! Excellent points all 'round.

    And thanks for the recommendations for more shows, guys! I'm off to look 'em up.

  33. How I have never read the giant chicken post, I will never know. That is so full of awesome. Thank you, oh Geek-Goddess-That-Is-Jen.

  34. More UK TV series you HAVE to see:
    Cranford (another period drama), Sherlock (yes, you guessed it, based on Sherlock Holmes) and Whitechapel. Awesome.. AWESOME production, story, music, acting and many more. I <3 UK TV Series at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I LOVED Downton Abbey too!!! I was really reluctant then on a whim watched the first one when my husband was out of town. Totally hooked. Can't wait for season 2.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Today's time-waster (tho not really) is making my thru info on a new start-up biz. Looking at how to write a biz plan, looking for funding, etc. Scary process. Can I do this? YES!!! In the meantime, I'm going to check out the metal chicken.... sounds fascinating~

    the chicken story

    I had to post that to FB because it made me laugh so hard I snorted

    Downton Abbey, season 2, in Jan, 2012 per PBS website: the countdown has begun. :D

  38. I love Downton Abbey! I watched all seven episodes in one day...I just couldn't stop. I heard that they are working on Season 2. Can't wait!

  39. Over the weekend I discovered the first season of Drop Dead Diva on Netflix Watch Instantly...I watched the whole season and then had to search the web for the second season which I proceeded to watch all of...I watched the first episode of the third season last night so I'm getting close to caught up on the whole series in just a matter of days! Yeah!

  40. The Ten Myths About Introverts article was like reading my own biography. I wish others would get that about me. I am fairly shy too. Or maybe I'm just self-conscious. You will never catch me speaking/ performing in front of any size group... much to the dismay of my piano teacher.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh my god. Laughing so hard at the giant metal chicken post!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ooh, good stuff on introverts. I like the point that extroverts really struggle to comprehend introversion.

    I read a blog whose writer is very outgoing and loves social situations. She described going to a banquet after she'd been through a couple of very stressful experiences and encountering the strangest feeling - she really didn't want to talk to anyone, she felt uncomfortable, and thought about leaving ten minutes after she arrived. She eventually did sit down and talk a bit with the people at her table, but still left early. She'd never experienced anything like it, and was worried that she was having a mental breakdown.

    All the introvert readers laughed and said 'now you know how we feel!' (although what she described was really more like mild social anxiety than introversion), and we quickly reassured her that she was not going insane. As far as I know she was back to her normal self after that night and it never happened again, but I've never forgotten the image of an extrovert experiencing what it's like to NOT be gregarious, and being completely wigged out by it.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I literally laughed until I cried at the chicken thing. I don't think that's ever happened before.

    ReplyDelete
  44. What's wasting my time this week is sitting still in the heat-- no energy to move around all that much! :( So thanks for the reminder that Downton Abbey is on DVD-- I've loved Maggie Smith ever since I can remember. I love Harry Potter movies for her and Alan Rickman as much as anything else. (Hey, THERE's a guy who maybe could get you to love period films. It works on me, anyway! He's brilliant in just about everything, though. *swoon*)

    The article on introverts was spot on-- it's not about being shy; it's about how a person prefers to spend their free time. I'm not one to seek out the company of others when I've got time to kill, usually-- too many projects to do on my own!

    ReplyDelete
  45. You're horribly mean, but I am sure it was unintentional. I am now aching, no DYING to watch Downton Abby. I even have Netflix. But apparently it isn't available in Canada. Such a tease!

    I have been horribly distracted by a Anime called Mushishi that I think is on par with anything Studio Ghibli - if you are into that sort of thing! I highly recommend it!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I caught Downton Abbey on PBS Masterpiece. Maggie Smith is always brilliant!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oh no. Must add to queue.

    Speaking of British dramas, I was exposed to North & South last week. That one is a bit closer to Pride and Prejudice plot-wise, but you still have the political backdrop of cotton mill strikes and the ever-present class divides.

    And then, of course, possibly most importantly, you have Richard Armitage. UNF. Smoldering that well should not be humanly possible.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I highly recommend the BBC's series (15 episodes) of Charles Dicken's Bleak House. It's * fabulously* done and is such a great story! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bleak_House_(2005_TV_serial)
    Any little game recommendations?? :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I started watching Downton Abbey just the other day and after two episodes, I'm hooked too. Bit of geek trivia for you: Penelope Wilton, who plays Isobel Crawley, is also Harriet Jones, Prime Minister from Doctor Who, and in the first episode, the Duke of Crowborough is Tristan Thorn from Stardust. Ah, how I love IMDb.

    PBS also did a sort of reality show around 2002 where they had normal people come and live in an Edwardian style house, as the roles (maids, the Family, the footman, etc). It's called Manor House, although I believe it was also released under the title Edwardian Country House. If you have a few hours (or days), it's well worth the watching just for the costumes.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I liked Downton Abbey too. Good to know there is another season on its way.

    Netflix recommended a movie that I watched last night called "Little Voice". It has Michael Kaine & Ewan McGregor in it, but the main story follows a young woman who has a wonderful singing voice, but will only use it in her own bedroom. I highly recommend this movie.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I've never been musch for Jane Austen either, and then one of my best friends found out that I had never even seen the Colin Firth Pride and Prejugdice series. Since I had forced her to watch Buckaroo Bonzai (because I'm a good friend like that), I sort of owed her one. Now I'm hooked, which is a really longwinded way of saying, Downtown Abby is going in my queue right now. Thanks for the suggestion!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love Downton Abbey! It has been by far one of my favorite BBC series, other then of course the amazing Sci-fi ones! I own Downton and watch it often.

  53. ahhhh and I have so much to finish before vacation next wee.....ooooh variations on the haunted house!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Downton Abbey = Awesome! I found it here: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/ before it was on Netflix, and have found lots of other treasures there, too! Netflix also has "Sherlock", a fabulous Masterpiece Mystery.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Introverts, oh yes. I can do one on one and then totally do presentations before big groups (at least 30), but small "intimate" groups or parties no way. And mingling, ooh forget that.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oh Jen, thank you for pointing me in the direction that Blogess post. I had missed it, and now my tragedy is that I laughed until I cried, and am having a devil of a time getting rid of the mascara streaks.

  58. My most recent time waster is watching vocaloid videos on YouTube. Since our trip to Japan, our daughter has been obsessed with all things Japanese. She introduced me to vocaloids and I gotta admit, they pretty sweet. The songs are very catchy and I now have several on my iPod.

    WV:supedst- That was the supedst movie I had ever seen.

  59. I am inordinately fascinated by abandoned amusement parks. Always have been, really. I really wish someone could explain why, as I never really knew anyone else who had the same fascination until the internet came along.

    Needless to say, I was enthralled by the Six Flags pics. Yeah, some of them are overly re-touched and re-colored, but still.

    And as someone else said, it would be so neat to have some of the stuff from there (signs and such); it's a shame that they won't let that happen.

    Ran across this vid of abandoned Joyland in Wichita, KS on another blog: No Joyland

    I also have to admit that I've looked at the pics of overgrown River Country multiple times. MULTIPLE times, what the heck. I don't even know why!

    As always, thanks for providing interesting stuff for me to while away my day.

  62. OMGoodness! I just read the giant chicken post and spit coffee on my work computer! Funniest post I've read in a long time.

  64. well, if you must know what I have been using for procrastination this week, I finally went back to the very beginning of cakewrecks and worked my way to the first time I ever saw a post (which would be approximately four months ago). I just want to say thank you very much Jen (and hubby and number one). It was time well wasted. (get it, well wasted?) Ok, I'm not as funny as you. Thanks again. Keep up the wrecktasticular work. (ok, it's out of my system now. maybe.)

  65. Manor House is a great way to understand how the different social classes were constrained to act.
    The British version of stifling woman- every country has its own after all-was iteresting for this ole American...
    The show even brought in a senior who had been in service in her younger days... eye opening
    I found it amazing..

  68. This week it's Castle Empire Beta and Christian Kane's The House Rules album.

    Sad, but that's it. I've been elbow deep in publications for two weeks and haven't had my dedicated procrastination time.

  69. We have just added Downtown Abbey to our list of dvds to purchase. Netflix in Canada does not show the same shows as the US site.

    Doing research on the show, we found out that the episodes shown in the US are shorter by 30 - 40 minutes. The dvd has all the British episodes (7 in all).

    ReplyDelete
  70. OMG - I had never heard of Bloggess before and she is absolutely hysterical! Thanks for the tip. I enjoyed reading all of her posts, including the chicken.

    I, too, am an introvert who is hooked on Downton Abbey. :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. Thank you for the articles on being an introvert! I love reading things like this because it makes me feel like I'm not alone in feeling like every single item on the 10 myths list.

    And it was also wonderful reading everyone else's comments on here who say that these articles describe them to a 'T' as well!

    Introverts of the world, unite!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Liked the introvert article. My dh and I wonder how two introverts managed to have two extrovert children. It's fun but often exhausting! Some years ago a friend described the difference between introverts and extroverts very well, I thought: an introvert and an extrovert both go to a party and both have a wonderful time. After the party, the introvert is ready to go home and have some quiet time. The extrovert is ready to go to five more parties.

  73. I love Downton Abbey! Series two airs end of this year...

  75. Re: introversion - As an introvert who was in dance recitals for all my growing-up years, and now do occasional public speaking, I totally get the idea of "big crowds = okay; one on one = okay; anything else = kind of strenuous."

    I feel like big crowds are big enough that there's a certain amount of detachment and anonymity--even if you're doing the speaking, it's easy not to feel too personally drained. One on one time is very personal, but small and focused enough so as not to be overwhelming.

    Smaller groups, on the other hand DO feel very personal, and the increasing number of personal interactions can get overwhelming pretty quickly. I can speak in front of hundreds of people any day. I usually dread having to speak in front of a small handful, even (and sometimes especially) if I know and like all of them already.

  81. Damn you and Downtown Abbey... I've been avoiding it even though it is always in the recommended viewing of Netflix... now I've watched two episodes and I'm sure it'll be midnight before I finally turn it off and go to bed... BTW as a resident of the Gulf Coast and familiar of NOLA I can truly appreciate the fabulous photos of Six Flags... AND now I want a giant chicken too...

  82. THANK YOU for the giant metal chicken link! I posted on FB, too.

  83. 1 . Yes, I did know about the Museum of the Weird.
    2. Congrats on discovering Downton Abbey. My family watched it as it came on. I wanted to watch it again, all the way through, but I didn't know that it was on Netflix. Thanks for the heads up!
    3. The article on introverts was great. Until hearing those descriptions, I never realized that I was one, myself! My social, mental, and personal inclinations make sense now!

  86. RE: Introverts

    On the MYBTI, I'm always an Introvert, usually in the 1% category (top right corner, I believe - it's been a while).

    I'll toss my hat in with the 'okay alone or in front of a crowd' group. It's kind of a running joke with my friends how much I hate people. I love performing, and I think one of the reasons I'm okay with it is that time is limited. You go onstage, you perform (maybe answer questions if it's a speech or something), and then you're finished. On the other hand, parties and such don't have set times. I went out of town for the weekend with some classmates recently. Sunday morning, I woke up and was ready to go home. Wound up staying another 8 hours because nobody else was. So. Darn. Frustrating.

    Anyhoo, those got reblogged.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Downton is awesome! It's a shame we have to wait until January for season two.

    Love both of your blogs by the way.
